The Snowman Tour 2017

If I was asked to tell you my memories of Christmas as a child, along with the trips to Santa’s grotto, decorating the tree and opening presents, it would be of sitting in the lounge on Christmas day, watching The Snowman with my family, completely mesmerised by the music and the story. And I think that would be the case for many.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about The Snowman Tour 2017, coming to a variety of venues this Christmas including Chester Catherdral, York Minster, Liverpool, Lichfeld, Durham, Worcester, Coventry Cathedrals as well as the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom and beautiful Hull City Hall.

With world class musicians performing Howard Blake’s beautiful soundtrack – including the evocative “Walking in the Air” sung by a local child soloist –  perfect synchronicity with the film shown on a giant screen, I’m sure there wont be a dry eye in the house!

This really is the most magical, wonderful Christmas experience to share as a family and I for one cannot wait!! The children and I watched the promotional video together and there was nothing but complete silence, followed by, “Can we go and see that!!”

At Chester, Chesterfield, Derby, Coventry, Oldham, Blackpool, Hanley and Hull there is a new performance this year –  an exclusive animated film of the award winning book, The Bear and the Piano, by David Litchfield. With the silky smooth voice of Joanna Lumley narrating, along with a beautiful accompanying score, it looks set to become a family favourite for the next generation.

At York, Worcester, Lichfield, Liverpool and Durham the second performance will be The Nutcracker Suite with an accompanying exclusive animated film in the first half.

With many venues predicted to sell out long before December, buy your tickets soon to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available >>> here <<<

Suitable for all ages from 3+

    We saw the Snowman in London last year and it was amazing, it really set us all up for Christmas. I’m so pleased it’s going on tour, Christmas isn’t Christmas without the Snowman!

    I went to see this at the Lyceum with my family. It was so magical we loved it ?

    Oh how cool that the snowman is going on tour, I bet it is absolutely amazing to hear it being playing live so magical.

    Oh my goodness, this sounds wonderful! Yes, watching The Snowman is definitely a Christmas memory for me, usually at silly o’clock on Christmas Day, before my parents were even up!

    It’s been a long time since i saw the snowman I might need to give it a watch here as the tour isn’t coming anywhere near me x

    The snowman is a brilliant film and this sounds like an amazing tour, shame its not coming to Glasgow!

  8. September 15, 2017 / 10:08 am

    Oh my goodness this tour looks amazing! My mum makes us watch The Snowman every Christmas Eve and it always makes me feel so Christmassy and excited. The music is amazing so I bet it gives you goosebumps listening to it being played by a live orchestra!

    I remember watching The Snowman as a kid and I loved it. I can’t wait until my LO is older so we can take her to see plays and stories live. The bear and the piano sounds really good as well! The live band must have been incredible x

  10. September 15, 2017 / 11:43 am

    It’s not Christmas until you’ve watched the Snowman! Loved this animation as a child {and I still do!}.

  11. September 15, 2017 / 12:30 pm

    I do love The Snowman, and if my little girl was older, I would definitely take her to this!

  12. September 15, 2017 / 2:35 pm

    Oh wow I bet that would be amazing, especially with the live music in time with the film

  13. September 15, 2017 / 5:09 pm

    This looks so much fun, I wish it was coming to Brighton. I love the film, makes me feel properly Christmassy every year.

      Yes! Finally something amazing that isn’t down in London! xx

    My daughter loves the Snowman and has two of the exact same teddies. Would love to take her to the tour, I reckon she’d love it. There isn’t one around here, but I think a trip to London to see it would be so worth it.
